I loved this film. If you've a soft spot for New York romcoms and you have kids then you'll probably really enjoy it. If you don't have kids then it really might not work for you at all. There are some very great performances from the cast and some really hilarious moments. Unfortunately where the film falls down is actually with the director's casting of herself. Whilst coming across well in her most vulnerable moments, her 'happy' spells and banter with her 'best' friend come across as incredibly forced and she isn't warm or 'real' enough to work the comedy lines. However as a lighthearted and often poignant fun couple of hours this was an enjoyable film. The photography was also beautiful, subtle and full of vibrant colours.
Movie is totally dehumanized and in range with Transformers 3 when it comes to that. On top of that all characters are very dull with nothing interesting or not to mention smart to say especially main actress on which you can see that she went on a lot of plastic surgeries and botox injections - and how do you take people like that seriously? It's really one of those movies you regret seeing.
A film so bad i googled EST to see if i can get this done privately to permanently erase the memory of this witless crap.. should be renamed THE vagina monologue
In the week that Nora Ephron passed away we see the release of another When Harry Met Sally clone right down to the New York christmas scenes and the waring couples. Sadly this is where the resemblance ends. We are left with what is barely an adequate film that relies too much on swearing and sex for its humour. Its not very funny and certainly isn't a date movie either. The ending is very cliched and seeks to copy the ending of Ephron's film with the return to tell the woman what he really feels. Even that isn't romantic more of an invitation to hump each other. All in all a disappointment.
